Import Templates

Import templates are files that contain instructions for reading plot data files.

The program has over 20 different templates for reading a wide variety of data files. You can also write custom templates to support special file formats using the Import language, found in the three programs.

In order for the program to use a template, it must be registered in a list. When a data file is read, each template in the list is tried until the appropriate template is found. You can register your own list of templates using a preferences file.
Note: See Preference Files in the HyperWorks Desktop User Guide for more information on specifying default user settings at startup.

adams_matrix.tpl is grouped under ADAMS Time History file support.
